About my blog: Writing Straight is from the maxim: God writes straight with crooked lines. Crooked Lines is the title of my first novel. Through life’s crooked lines and learning curves, people are the dots that connect. This website is about connecting with each other to inspire and share about life and writing.
About Holly Michael: I’m a kaleidoscope, twisted and turned by the hand of God through a beautiful life of writing, traveling, and other incredible opportunities. Was a regular freelance ghostwriter and online editor for Guideposts for Teens/Sweet 16 Magazine, creator/editor of a magazine for Wal-Mart Corp., journalist, newspaper features writer, published in a variety of national magazines and local newspapers, script writing/editing for a financial corporation, book reviewer, and now writing fiction and nonfiction, blogging, and editor of Koinonia Magazine. I’m the wife of Rt. Rev. Leo Michael, an Anglican Bishop in the Holy Catholic Church-Anglican Rite. Mom to three wonderful grown kids: My sweet Betsy girl and my two boys: Jake Byrne (former NFL player) and Nick Byrne (Ragin Cajuns). I’ve been blessed to be able to travel extensively across the United States and internationally to India, England, Scotland, France, and Canada. My first novel, Crooked Lines, was published in 2014. My second book-nonfiction-Tsunami 2004 – Still Wading Through Waves of Hope was published on the ten year anniversary of the 2004 Tsunami. Plan to have at least two more books published in 2016. Updates to come!
